    Description

    Live, work, and play in this gorgeous turn of the century three story brick Victorian in Louisville's most heralded neighborhood--the Highlands. Highland Avenue is an iconic street; 1405 Highland Ave is not just a home, is not just a great renovated and modernized Victorian but also a lifestyle in a highly sought after neighborhood location with soaring values. This amazing home was rehabbed in 2006 by the previous owners and updated again by one of the country's leading experts (Professor) on historic preservation from 2016 to 2019 using Architectural Salvage to find missing pieces of craftsmanship. Updates include one new HVAC (1) system, plumbing, electric, the two and half bathrooms, a modern kitchen, and energy efficiencies were added as well.The ground floor living areascraftsman's dream with beautiful refinished inlaid floors throughout. The foyer, living room, and dining room have gorgeous parquet floors. This floor has three amazing grand fireplaces with uniquely beautiful historical details. The fireplace in the video/dining room has a working gas hearth. The updated kitchen includes new tile flooring with stainless steel GE profile appliances and craft made cabinets windows on two sides. The former "mud room" has been newly renovated with wall to wall custom shelves perfect to hold a collection of rock and roll albums, CD's and music book; this could be a good place for a music room! This room is also the entrance to the cellar with shelves and tables. The entire front of the house has been painted with chromatic colors. The freshly painted front of the home's massive covered porch with swing is perfect for people watching. Currently the painters are finishing up the sides and back of the Victorian. The second floor offers three bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The master bedroom has natural light coming in from the North and South ends with another cast iron fireplace! The master bath has marble flooring, double sinks, a Jacuzzi tub and a separate stand up glass enclosed shower. The second bedroom is very large, it has floor to wall custom shelves perfect for your library, and a craftsman fireplace. The house also provides a porch area on the North that could be finished or enclosed in glass to extend the square footage of the bedroom plus a small closet. The third room has been converted into an office with wrap around custom shelves with barn door custom historic wood panel doors on the closet. On the third floor, the owner has added an additional bedroom or office space with closets tastefully done with historic details. Enjoy the beautiful outdoors in your privately fenced back yard; where there is room enough for badminton, croquet, volleyball or simply entertaining. Unlike many Highland houses, the backyard has alley access allowing the new owner to build a garage, guesthouse, green house or carriage house. Although built in 1900, the home offers energy efficiencies: the metal roof was coated a thick substance called "umbrella" white to deflect the sun and reduce energy costs along with lots of large trees in the front. Another extra featured is that with high ceilings, central air on the first floor is unneeded with fans placed in four of the first floor rooms, three in the second floor rooms and one in the third floor. Call the Highlands "weird", independent, fun, nutty, historic and one-of-a kind neighborhood with the greatest variety of restaurants, places of worship, diversity, tolerance, live music, walkability, bike-ability and dog walker paradise. It's just a short commute time to downtown work or museums and colleges. Whether it is Fodor's or USA Today, the Highlands is ranked as one of the best urban neighborhoods in the nation right up there with Greenwich Village in New York or Haight Asbury in San Francisco"with the most painted ladies and ranking fourth behind San Francisco, New Orleans, and Miami Beach. But you don't have to pay millions of dollars to live in this historic Victorian of craftsmanship, pride, and value. Make 1405 Highland Ave your home and enjoy the Highland lifestyle.
